The Gothic Project Reading List


I decided a while ago that I was going to continue reading and livetweeting Gothic fiction even after my capstone class ended.  To that end, I’ve put together a decent-length list of books to read, and I’ve reproduced the list here.  These are in no particular order save for the first two – what do you think I should read after Dracula?  Is there anything I’m missing?  Sound off!

  • The Phantom of the Opera (because of course I’ve got to finish this one)
  • Dracula
  • The Castle of Otranto
  • The Monk
  • The Mysteries of Udolpho
  • Northanger Abbey
  • The Blood of the Vampire
  • Jane Eyre
  • Elsie Venner
  • Frankenstein (okay, technically I’ve read this already, but it was years ago)
  • The Cask of Amontillado
  • The Black Cat
  • Berenice
  • Roger Malvin’s Burial
  • The Lair of the White Worm
  • The Yellow Wallpaper
